Thumbs Up


Isn't it a nightmare when you can't find someone capable of understanding exactly what you mean or want and doing a good job? The Dubai Survival Guide Team has lived here long enough to know that when you find a good company, school, doctor, gardener or any other business that do what they say on the box, then you hang onto them for dear life. We live in a global community and most service companies can work anywhere in the world with a little help from the magic of the World Wide Web and the ease of international travel. If it's a 'hands on' type of job you'll find the good guys here too. If you know of a company or individual to whom you give a 'thumbs up' then please send us their details via 'Rant n Rave' and we'll look into them.
